Aram Mp3, Armenia’s Eurovision 2014 singer, has released the official video for his entry “Not Alone”. This electro ballad, which features glorious instrumentals, represents a major departure for this comedian-turned-pop-star, who is best known for his dance tracks. Aram’s solid vocals mix with a seriousness of purpose, and we think he’s on to a winner.

His ballad is a hymn devoted to perseverance. It encourages victims of domestic abuse and torrid relationships to remember that they’re not alone, and that they can remove themselves from all the turmoil.

The song begins solemnly, but builds continuously. Moving into the second minute, it crescendos into an extended period of rage as horns blare over the synthesized backing. It’s measured and perfectly timed.

Thematically he suggests that passion can lead to one’s unraveling. It can blind us from the horrors and faults of those we think we love. Seeing the truth can hurt, but it’s essential to have that reckoning: “You’re gonna wake up/ It’s only a dream/ And why do dreams make people scream?””

You can read the Not Alone lyrics below. What do you think of the song?

“Not Alone” lyrics

You’re all alone, you’re all alone,
No shoulder wants you to lean on,
You thought this world was too cold
And you’ve made up
A whole new world

Don’t cry, don’t cry little bird
Though you are scared and you’re hurt
You’re gonna wake up
It’s only a dream
And why do dreams make people scream

You’re not alone…

What if it’s all in one kiss
That turns all seeds into trees
The strongest wind into breeze
Enter all doors without keys

What if it’s all in one kiss
That turns all seeds into trees
The strongest wind into breeze
What if it’s all in one kiss

You’re not alone…

“What if it’s all in one kiss?” that can make all in life suddenly look beautiful ? These lyrics are fantastic. His vocal performance was not perfect but good, and the song was lyrically fantastic and musically also amongst the better songs this year. That one line about all being in one kiss … that goes very deep. Indeed, one kiss can change a life. Let’s not forget: if people love each other and stay together as a couple for life, it all started some day with that first kiss … Fantastic lyric.

The fact that we can’t vote in the US makes this so frustrating, lol, but WE WILL BE SCREAMING AND YELLING AND ROOTING FOR ARAM ALL THE WAY!! We have all of our family and friends all over Europe ready to dial in! =) Being from Azerbaijan originally, as was many generations of my family, but Armenian, I am very surprised at some of the POSITIVE reviews I am reading from Azerbaijan… very very pleasantly surprised. Thank you!! And those of you saying its a political contest, yes, it is, but they will NOT get away with shoving their politics… Read more »

You all should stop so much hate. Armenia is probably gonna win (I hope they don’t anyway :D). The song is just awesome. (Lyrics are crap tho). Keep your politics to yourselves, this is a song contest. Of course Eurovision is not all about music, it might be a little political too but this doesn’t just keep you from liking a song. Come on guys, you have to be honest! I’m from Azerbaijan and I’m completely OK with this song. Move your politics to somewhere else.

I know this is supposed to be empowering, inspirational or whatever, but it’s just too over the top! And what concerns me the most, not having listened to all the songs, is that this the hot favourite! Man, are we in trouble!

Aram is well known for his live performances. I have been to one of his live concerts and he truly sang his heart out. In other words… He blew the roof off. You should’ve seen the looks on the audience’ s faces. I’m from USA and I think Aram is highly talented, very educated, kind hearted, fun, and charismatic individual. It is impossible to have any kind of negative opinion about Aram when you get to see him. He is a positive person, full of love for everyone. We love you Aram and we regret not being able to vote.… Read more »

Armenia’s entry is the song with the most passion this year. In my opinion, that counts for a lot. Also, if you pay attention to the voice, there is a lot going on. I believe Armenian has the best overall song in 2014.

@Samir – you’re a good person!
This song is still my #1, FYI I have predicted 5/6 winners in the past completely correctly.
2008 – I predicted #1 Russia #2 Ukraie #3 Greece #4 Armenia (I swear)
2009 – Norway (that was an obvious one)
2010 – Germany (yes, I didn’t think either Armenia or Azerbaijan were going to win)
2011 – Did not predict correctly 🙁
2012 – Sweden (another obvious one)
2013 – Denmark
2014 – I predict ARMENIA.

Lilit

My message is addressed to people who just criticize Aram for no reason and dishonestly!!

And it especially refers to azeris!
Be human, you, animals!

Lilit
Guest

Heey! Didn’t you understand that Aram is not alone?!!!
If someone says smtn bad or wrong about him, will regret a lot! If you knew what is respect for your and other candidates, you would have the word “tasib” in your vocabularies!

Armenia is my country, Aram is my HERO!!

He deserves victory!
He is a WINNER for us!

Aram is a very veeeery talented artist, amd his song is just amazing!!! @Azer as many others as already said a music competition! there is no place for your personal opinions on what Armenia is or who Armenians are. ok? if you want to show how much you know or you think you know, then choose another forum for it. not here, and do not poison this place with your evil comments out of subject. it just shows that you are jealous. We are from sweden and we support this artist because we love the song and love his talent.… Read more »

Well, this is a good song, I like a lot these lyrics. But to be honest, their 2013 song was better IMO! :$ Anyways, good luck to him from Azerbaijan!

It seems like there is no clear favorite to win this year, but I still think that Norway, Azerbaijan, Russia and Austria can give us FTW songs, let’s wait and see! 😉

@AZER, I think that this is not right place to discuss or promote such things, and it is not really good to insult people just because you don’t like them. Relax and just be cool….. Please! :/

As a Eurovision fan it makes me feel happy how some people takes this contest soo serious, but at the same time I feel sad how do they turn it to endless national fight..

Just listen to the songs and enjoy this great show, people.. MUSIC always been and will be more important than POLITICS!! (sorry for being off topic)
